Catalogue Note

"Particularly the large paintings kind of solidify what I've been trying to do for a long time, which is to make a large painting feel like a drawing, like sitting on the couch with a Sharpie, just making a little line drawing. Because at that scale, it's like the arm movements translate pretty seamlessly into a hand movement. I'm kind of dancing around this thing, doing it as quick as possible, and just letting the marks fall where they fall. And I think it really worked." Eddie Martinez
